Herdsmen killings: Wike tells FG what to do

Herdsmen killings: Wike tells FG what to do

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has advised the Federal Government on the best way to end the incessant killings going on across the country.

The Governor called on the government to decentralize the security architecture in the country.

He said the country would be secured if the governors were allowed to control the security of their states.

He noted that the “centralization of the police has not favoured the country’s security.”

According to him, “For us in Rivers State, our position on state and community policing is very clear.

“While we join our voices to other well-meaning Nigerians to strongly and emphatically demand for the decentralization and depoliticization of security services, we are also not resting on the back of helplessness to do nothing.

“The reality before the nation is that centralized policing has flatly failed and is incapable of resolving the enormous security challenges of a vast and culturally diverse country like Nigeria.

“And even as we may continue to live in denial, the recurring bloodbaths in Benue, Taraba and other states have, once again, exposed the weaknesses of our country’s centralized policing system as well as the frustrations and near complete helplessness of state governors in their quest to provide adequate security for the communities and the people that they govern.”
